The industry may see an eruption of wind turbine quality problems as time progresses and currently the operation time of Chinese wind turbines are not long enough to test the quality, according to a research note by China Investment Consulting.
Meanwhile, like other Chinese-made products, it's unfortunate that a war on price seems to be going on in the domestic market of wind power (wind energy) in China. And as time progresses, the war on price is going on in the foreign market when China manufacturer of wind power turn to competite outside China.
One noticeable fact is that Chinese-made wind turbines cost much less than international brands. General Electric (GE) has successfully reduced its cost to about 4,500 yuan (about $670) for each kilowatt-hour (kwh) while Chinese manufacturers have lowered it to below 4,000 yuan (about $595).
